a look at what the alliance's defense will look like on turkey's border to syria. >> it is designed to detect, intercept, and hit an enemy missile. there are batteries like these stationed in germany. some could be deployed to turkey within weeks. berlin is calling it a legitimate request from a nato ally. >> turkey has already been hit by cross-border mortar fire from syria, so it is understandable that turkey is holon and has asked the alliance for a sign of solidarity. refusing that request would have profound implications for the alliance and send the wrong signal to the regime of president assad. >> nato is warning damascus not to cross a red line, for instance, by using chemical weapons. >> the use of chemical weapons would be completely unacceptable for the whole international community, and if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, i would expect an immediate reaction. >> apart from germany, the u.s. and netherlands are also expected to supply patriots. both have backed a rapid deployment to their nato allies. >> i think if one of our allies asks us to help with that, i

missiles are being deployed at turkey's request. the joint statement by the german defense and foreign ministries described turkey as the nato member most at risk from the civil war in neighboring syria. the conflict has sporadically spilled over onto turkish territory, and there are fears syria could also fire rockets. germany says troops are only being deployed to protect turkey. >> our support for turkey is clearly defensive in nature and is aimed at military deterrents -- deterrence. both turkey opposes support and our agreement to provide it made clear that this mission has nothing to do with instituting or maintaining a no-fly zone. >> germany has distanced itself from statements by the head of nato and the u.s. secretary of state that nato could intervene in syria if damascus begins using chemical weapons. >> germany's 16 state premiers have agreed to pursue a ban against the right wing radical npd party. >> and the prohibition would have to be upheld by germany's constitutional court. angela merkel government has so far been skeptical of the measure, saying that if it f

hands. >> the government takes a different view. the defense minister argued that exports to saudi arabia could help stabilize the situation in the middle east. we spoke to a defense analyst. i asked him how likely it is that saudi arabia could use these german tanks to put down uprisings and crush dissent. >> the boxer tanks which are discussed today are an armored vehicle used for transport purposes, not so much for riot control. it is a german-dutch corp. project. it is used mainly for the transportation to protect against insurgents in afghanistan. it is not designed so much for riot control or to control insurgencies, but more to protect the forces of germany and other countries in the field. >> the opposition is accusing the government of flouting court -- german guidelines. is that fair to say? >> the current policy guidelines for arms export in germany go back to the red green government a couple years ago. the current government is more or less responsible for the current guidelines. there is room for improvement. one of the points is that the arms export report is publish

to pick up. be on the defensive side and you will be amply toward it. >> which is why people are sitting on their money right now. you are saying the fed is still there. you have the aftereffects of superstorm sandy, accommodative policy by the fed and you think that spurs growth in the u.s. how strong will it be? >> first thing, we have grown 2.5% in the last four quarters. and i think we will go up to 3% growth next year. i think there is some fiscal tightening but that is nothing new. we are getting rapid money growth and record-low mortgage rates, drop in gas prices, drop in the dollar, lower inflation boosting income and it's working because we are getting more parts of the economy gearing. a year ago we had no bank lending and now we have a full year of it. in addition to that, i think next year's profile will be much more impacted by what happens in the emerging world if they pick up again than what is going on in washington. >> i would differ significantly in terms of where we are headed and the recommendation for investors. first, this is the slowest recovery we have had
